Don’t worry, Google play store has a lot of alternative camera apps for you. We have installed and tested all top camera apps and shortlisted these 5 best free camera apps. These 5 best free camera apps are free to install and use but, you may be asked to buy some in-app-purchase items. Here is our list of top 5 best free camera apps-
7 Best free Camera apps for Android
Camera 360 is one the best free camera apps for Android. It is perhaps the most downloaded camera app on the play store. It contains almost all the basic features as well as professional features including a separate camera to click selfies called Selfie Pro. Best quality selfies can be easily clicked by this camera. Whereas video recording by this app will not going to satisfy you. It supports only 10-second videos and sometimes we need more. Overall it’s a very nice and useful app for your photography needs.

YouCam Perfect- Selfie Pro
YouCam Perfect – Selfie Pro is also one of the best cameras to use. Clean and easy to use interface is its USP. It has a lot of features like brightness control, touch to click, filters and effects and an inbuilt photo editor. The inbuilt photo editor in this app is also feature rich. Another key point is its video recording feature. It can record long videos with ease and perfection. If you are a fan of mobile photography then it is a must have app for you.

Cymera app is another good camera app for android smartphones. It has a greater capability of clicking pictures and editing them in its inbuilt photo editor. It has two camera options.
